    Re: Cortina vs Sierra

    I've no idea why my message was deleted.

    Re: Differences between Marlin models....

    I reckon you would need a massive spreadsheet. Every Marlin is different. It is great to see all the Berlinettas parked together at Stoneleigh. All with many differences. The other Marlin types...

    Re: Changes to Highway Code.

    Thanks for this Steve.
    They have expanded the details of the rules and made the document a bit unwieldy. Few road users ever read the Highway Code once they have passed the test. The expansion will...

    Hi. Sorry it's taken a while to reply. I used the Burton's engineering option. I send my old rack to them in. If it is possible they repair my own rack and send it back.

    Just thinking about the last show. Trade stands didn't entirely fill the halls. In the largest hall they screened off an unused area with quite a large space behind. If it is necessary to have an AGM...

    The Burton web site has a good guide how to do it. I believe the Haynes Sierra manual has the info although I don't have this book.
